A divided country, why?

Election day is tomorrow, and everyone is giving their last minute opinion. So I thought I’d give mine, too. I believe in happiness and I believe in a UNITED country. It’s saddens me to see our country so divided, and it’s even more devastating when I read posts from my friends on my facebook dishing out such anger and rude comments about other people. See, what I don’t understand is why judge someone else based on their opinion or political view. Yes, we have the right to vote and chose whom ever we think is worthy of being our president, but why be rude or offensive about it. There is no need to call people names or say such wretched things. These words are being put out there for everyone to see, these cruel words are being read by everyone, why is that because you have a strong opinion about something and someone doesn’t agree with you, they are a horrible person for it. I teach my children to be nice to others, I teach them not to be rude to others, I teach them to share with others, I teach them how to always say please and thank you. The truth is that there will always be something that we don’t agree on, there will always be elections, there will always be things that some of us want and others don’t. What upsets me the most is when people say if you don’t vote this you’re this. Really, then how are we better than the other person?  We should all learn how to live together in a UNITED country not in a DIVIDED country or a country full of hate towards each other. So next time you say something vile on any social media site, please be mindful who is reading it on the other side. There are ways of stating your opinion, without being abhorrent. This is not about sides, this is about how to treat others the way we want to be treated. Stand up for what you believe in and voice your opinion, just be nice about it.  I believe in a life full of love and happiness, what about you?Comments 1

    I just want this whole election to be over and done. It is stressful on everyone, and does cause strife between people.
